The Wooden Quill is pleased to present a turned Beechwood vessel with a "flower frog" insert. The vessel itself is hand turned from wood obtained when a 30" branch of a more than 200 year old beechnut tree came down in a thunderstorm in June of 2008.
The vessel is embellished with "veining" to give the piece texture and a very tactile feel to the surface. The vessel itself is approximately 6" in diameter and a little over 2.5" tall. It is a solid piece and weighs over 2 pounds.
The piece is signed and dated on the bottom and finished with several coats of Danish Tung Oil.
Each vessel comes with an 18" white phalaenopsis orchid stem complete with leaves and life like roots. The orchid can be removed and other flowers can be arranged in its place.
This makes an excellent gift for a housewarming, wedding or anniversary gift - especially the 5th wedding anniversary - or as an accent piece to brighten a room or a desk.
Thank you for your interest.
